Roger Amundsen


Roger is a versatile artist and seasoned performer with a deep appreciation for music in all its forms. He began playing classical piano at a young age and later fell in love with synths and electronic music. From there he pursued film scoring and classical composition at university. After graduation, he toured internationally with a Grammy-nominated indie band before transitioning to freelance composition and production work. As a multidisciplinary fine artist, Roger enjoys painting, illustrating, and designing, and hopes to play in a band again one day.

As a wedding DJ, Roger loves being a part of one of the most memorable days in a couple’s life. He finds joy in connecting with other wedding vendors and working together to create a seamless, unforgettable experience for the happy couple and their guests. Roger particularly looks forward to playing the last song of the night, when the dance floor is packed with the couple’s closest friends and family, and everyone is singing their hearts out.

When he’s not behind the DJ booth, Roger can be found indulging in a variety of outdoor activities, from swimming and cycling to hiking and sailing. He also enjoys the quiet solitude of painting and reading, as well as the mental stimulation of solving crosswords. Roger is always seeking out new adventures and experiences, and he brings that same spirit of exploration and creativity to every wedding he DJs.


Best music for…

Road Trips: 80s (Talking Heads, The Cure, David Bowie, The Smiths) or 2000s & 2010s indie (The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The National, Arcade Fire, etc.)

On a Boat: Depends. Either Paul Simon vibes, or something more chill and electronic like Arlo Parks, Glass Animals, Claud, ODESZA, or Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

Why do you live in Northern Michigan and what do you enjoy about the area? 
I moved here almost five years ago, and I love being so close to water. To Lake Michigan. I like being outside: beach bonfires in summer, skiing with buds over winter.
